Blow to DP Ruto as Two MPs Who are Allied to Him Promise to Support the BBI

The deputy President, honorable William Ruto is one of the top politicians who is at the fore front in opposing the Building Bridges Initiative. He has even made his TangaTanga legislators to also oppose the BBI agenda. The deputy President got some major blow after some two members of Parliament who are his close allies promised that they will support the BBI.

The Star Newspaper reported that the Member of Parliament of Imenti North, honorable Rahim Dawood said that he will support the BBI because of some reasons. He said that one of the reasons is that the BBI advocates for the inclusivity of women in leadership. He also said that he will support the BBI because it also advocates for the addition of two more constituencies in Meru County.

The member of Parliament of Imenti Central, honorable Kirima Ngushine who is also a close ally of the deputy President, also told honorable Peter Munya to tell President Uhuru Kenyatta that they are behind him and they will support him as the people of Imenti Central. He said that they have specifically seen some developments in their constituency that were initiated by President Uhuru Kenyatta. He also said that President Uhuru Kenyatta should visit Meru County because he has supporters there too.

This is indeed a major blow to the deputy President, because it seems like he is slowy losing his grip in Meru County. The two legislators are his close allies but they have now decided that they will support President Uhuru Kenyatta and the BBI.
